We're back with another video round-up that should excite fans of The Walking Dead, James Bond, and Salem's John Alden. The first trailer for Arc Entertainment's The Walking Deceased, a horror comedy spoof of AMC's The Walking Dead and other living dead films like Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead, has been released, along with a new behind-the-scenes look at the 24th Bond film, Spectre, and another teaser for season two of Wgn America's Salem.
The Walking Deceased (slated for a March 20th release): "The Walking Deceased is a delightfully bloody addition to the pantheon of zombie-apocalypse spoofs. Lampooning every tried and true zombie meme.

As a former teenage outcast of the highest (lowest?) order, I'm particularly sensitive to the depiction of adolescent Ishmaels on film. And truth be told? A fair amount of Hollywood movies simply don't get it right. It takes a lot of elements to render a convincing teen or pre-teen geek, goth, nerd and/or loner on film, from the acting to the writing to the directing to the wardrobe department -- and a few select movies have nailed it. "Carrie"? "Welcome to the Dollhouse"? "Ghost World"? All have realistically rendered the pain of adolescent pariah-dom on film. The films listed below, on the other hand? Not so much. As "The Duff" hits theaters, let's take a look back at nine terribly unconvincing teenage outcasts in the movies. See also: 10 Great High School Mean Girls on Film »

Synopsis: Love is a dangerous game, but this is ridiculous! After “relations” with an seemingly nice guy, Jay (Monroe) finds herself stalked by a malevolent force and must find a way to shake off this deadly curse.
Horror and originality are distant bedfellows, for years the genre has been the refuge of the flat-pack film-maker; assembling the pre-fab facets of films that are as rickety as heck but, more or less, perform their basic function. It Follows is a welcome break from the mediocrity; a spooky sleeper-hit already impressing critics, garnering a slew of award wins and nominations thanks to it’s indie sensibilities and new threat to fear.
It Follows is essentially the story a sexually transmitted entity; you do the deed, you contract the curse and now It’s after you. »
